Yu can't always get what you want

In a Chinese real-life version of a reality tv show:

RIA Novosti - World - Chinese tycoon's best-mistress contest takes tragic turn

I'm sure there are lessons to be drawn from the story - one might be not to trust someone knocked out of competition...

"The businessman was going to lay off four of his five mistresses due to financial troubles," the paper said. "The women were allowed to vie for the remaining position by competing on their looks, their singing and speaking and their ability to drink alcohol."

Tony Soprano said that “revenge is best served as cold cuts.”

Yu might have been better off serving up her revenge on the flat lands.
